Minnow School: Lesson 1- Create your STEEMIT mission statement in 3 steps!

in minnowschool •  last year

Hello Minnows!

What a wonderful day to have you all assembled here. I'm your host. Dr. Aggroed.

Today, we're on lesson 1. Creating your mission statement. Now that we're past the title line this is actually a hidden paid assignment! I'll pay the top 10 Mission statements 10SBD each that are put in the comments.

In a previous post I talked about the value of a mission statement

I used it as the basis of my witness run that's now going swimmingly. Just crept into 53 Witness spot after @kingscrown hooked me up with his vote and some proxied votes. Good times!

I put some of that mission to use in this piece here dictating the things I work on and build on behalf of the platform.

Your job is to figure out what role you can have here, how you're going to help leave this a better place than the one you found, and act in a consistent manner to find resonance with your audience. If you do this well you might even catch a resteem. So, make it good. I won't pay or release it until all the payout on the post is done.

How do we write a mission statement

3 steps.

  1. Think about what you see as the biggest problem you see in the world or the thing you'd like to change the most.
  2. Write a vision of what you think it ought to look like instead.
  3. Share a mission that helps get us from here to there.

150 words minimum. Don't try to repeat words you'll get disqualified. Quality work to get my SBDs.

Posts need to include 3 images. One for each section. Try not to make it 100% literal. Try to think of something in life that evokes the emotions that you're talking about, but without a direct and very obvious link.

In order to be eligible for a resteem you have to put at least 2 of @elyaque 's badges into the footer of your post.

Write the post on your own blog, and then link it in the comments!

Best of luck and keep in touch because more Minnow School posts will follow and they'll have easter egg rewards in the text of the post!

Thanks a ton. We can all work together to improve conditions for each other.

That is such a great initiative.

·

Thanks. You like the easter egg?

·
·

I didn't saw it.

·
·

Hidden sbd reward!

·
·
·
·

Well they aren't really hidden right? Unless there's more than the 10*10 SBD. But no matter what I look forward to see what will people post.

Really great idea. I'll see what I can come up with. Hugs.

Lookin' forward to it!

Do we create new posts for the mission statements or reply here?

·

Yes. Make a post, and link the comment.

I am revising mine right now! Didn't even think about making it better. Thanks for the post :)

The biggest problem in the world 1. Getting Steemit acc verified. 2. Getting attention on Steemit. 3. Finally earning some pennies. Joking, good project.

Keep the good posts coming!

How about the proper tags of this great idea?

@jassennessaj your time to shine bro. :)

·

I'm hiding it... bonus for my followers!

Great idea!

Good start!

How do I keep forgetting this...lol. Thanks!

·

·
·

Nah, wait.....was my IRL throwing you. "In real life" - I'm trying to be cool like the young kids...LOL

Whats the deadline for the post?

·

Shabooya!!

Thanks for the content idea, it was really helpfull

Can I ask why it's a requirement to add badges and images? Sorry, I guess I just went ahead and asked anyway.

·

LOL. yeah. They are good for you. So, learning how to put them in place will help. badges are social proof. It will help, so I'm making that part of the HW.

·
·

I won't be taking part anyway so feel free to completely disregard me but, why is social proof important? Personally I disagree with the concept of advertising social status to the world. If I know I'm doing well I have no need or urge to make sure everybody else knows that I'm doing well, it seems very egoistic to me, but I don't know, maybe you could convince me otherwise.

·
·
·

Depends on your objectives. I'm looking to grow my account. Social proof helps. If you're just here to chill and have fun it's meaningless.

·
·
·
·

That was what I assumed, and I pretty much do fall into the only here to chill and have fun side of things. Also, I upvoted your post because, even though it's not for me, I do see the value in something like this for people just starting out who do wish to grow their profiles.

Thanks for your responses, I hope I didn't annoy or offend you or anybody else with my views on the subject, I'm just looking to learn more about this site.

haha thought I was looking at sperm.. maybe it will not be minnows in 10 years after the steam train ends

Great initiative! Mine coming soon. Hope @bostonrob @fellowhuman and @dina-myte follow suit!

Appreciate the opportunity, here is my first go at it.
